State Lawmakers Approve Bills to Protect Vehicle Choice

Kentucky and Kansas recently took significant steps to ensure automotive freedom and innovation for their states. Kentucky's Governor Andy Beshear allowed a bill to pass that blocks the adoption of California's stricter vehicle emissions standards, safeguarding consumer choice. Meanwhile, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly signed a bill that prevents state agencies and local governments from restricting vehicle sales based on their fuel technology. Both moves are celebrated by SEMA as victories for our industry.

Louisiana is the latest to champion this effort. Having passed both chambers of the legislature with overwhelming support, Governor Jeff Landry has now signed into law its own version of this legislation. Several other states have sought similar proposals to promote consumer choice, foster innovation, and protect jobs. SEMA believes that individuals, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families.

Your continued advocacy plays a crucial role in achieving these legislative victories, thus ensuring freedom of vehicle choice and innovation in the automotive community.
